Hello there!  It’s time for a new color challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.

When I first saw that several of my fellow design team members had used flowers on their cards for this challenge, I tried thinking of other ways to use the colors.  But I just couldn’t get flowers out of my head, especially after seeing that the current challenge at Less is More calls for using flowers.  So I decided to combine that theme challenge with the “along the edge” layout challenge at AAA Cards and our CC&S colors.  I chose one of my older Stampin’ Up sets for the flower image.  It’s actually a two-part stamp where the blossoms and foliage are two separate stamps, which makes it easy to use multiple colors for the image.  Confession time – for a long time I thought this image was of a gladiolus, and just a couple of years ago I realized it’s probably supposed to be a hollyhock.  Ooops.  I’m not sure I’ve ever seen real hollyhocks, but my mom had gladioli in her flower border, so I guess my mind tricked me into thinking it was what I was familiar with.   Anyway…  I used very narrow strips of cardstock in two of the challenge colors along the edge of the card to give it a little extra color, and stamped the sentiment in the same color as the card base.  I don’t have any actual Terracotta Tile cardstock or ink, so I used what I had that seemed like the closest match.  And here’s the final product:


How will you use these colors?  Be sure to check out the CC&S blog to see what the rest of the design team and our August guest designer have made.  Once you’ve made your own card, be sure to link it at the challenge post by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Monday, August 10.  We’d love to have you join us!  Thanks for stopping by today.
